Backpacking Bartlett is back to reality..

So I quit my job back in November, and decided to travel the world for 6 months. I literally had the best time of my life. I wrote a blog whilst I was away, keeping my friends and family updated with my travels. 

Now I am back, back to reality, temping over the summer at my old design job, feeling like I never went away...  I decided to make a little article using the jibber jabber from my blog and the photos I took whilst I was away. 

India is truly an amazing country, I was only there for just over 2 weeks, but I feel like it was one of the countries I gained the most from. I loved the fact that I was out of my comfort zone and everything was so different to here. Another world!

Christmas.. already!

I've been thinking about Christmas. Unfortunately Christmas time is underway at work, so the promoting and decorating is happening! So I thought I would get into the festive spirit early and create some cards. :)

Love Collage

I have been playing around with some collage. Using magazines, some beads I found and string. I used PVA glue and clear tissue paper to add texture to the image. Overall pretty happy with the results - and trying something new :D

Chalet Chef Cover

I have been working on a new project I set myself. I am using my experience as a Chalet Host to write a book, using the recipes I learnt and the photos I took to build a scrap-like cook book. Not only will it be a cook book, I want to fill it of stories and tips that will come in handy for future seasonaires. This is my front cover I am currently playing around with :)

Bear Cards

I did some work experience at Paperclip Cards, which was awesome I got to design greeting cards and print foils and exciting things on them. The top image of a bear on the bike is my favourite and the one I printed with extra purple foil.

It's been a while since I've posted on my blog. I have been busy trying to earn myself some money of the Christmas period. These are a few sketches I've done today. Being back in Bath makes me realise how beautiful a place I've grown up in. So I decided to go back to drawing some of the buildings. I am thinking of experimenting with colour on my next attempts, because my blog is starting to look a bit black and white!

And here are a few Penguins tooo....

I am back and I bring you BEARS

Sooo I haven't updated my blog for a while to be honest it's mainly because I haven't had a chance to do many illustrations. I have been very busy working to get myself some pennies. So this is some drawing I have done this week, mainly of bears. I do love Pandas they are sooo cute! :D

Birds, Birds, Birds

Sooooo I have been busy with my new receptionist job, which has been invloving FULL time hours! As any student would understand it hasn't been easy getting back into the swing of working. Due to this my creative flow had come to a temporary stand still. However today was my first proper day off with nothing to do, so I found myself in the Garden drawing the little birds that my mum likes to over feed!! Hopefully this will be the beginning of a creative roll!!!
